Kath -wow girl..... WTG 75 pounds gone.... wow... just so proud of ya.... and as sammi said just do not get discouraged... WE are here for you... and we can do this together....

no one has really noticed my 30 pound loss - but my three BFF's are also losing weight and they know how much I have lost, but Lonnie said to me - we really do not what to say that we do notice it.. because in her case if someone says - you have lost weight.. Lonnie will stop and put weight on...it is a mind thing for her.... she was abused as a child... and she found that being larger people would not notice her and then she was safe.... and she does not want me to stop losing weight..... but I am fine with that... I know that I have dropped 30 pounds and dropped one dress size... so I am happy...

I'm the opposite. I've lost 53# I don't see the difference and think I still look disgusting and fat but other people notice and tell me my weight loss is showing. One of the spotters this morning said he didn't know what plan I was following but it's sure making a difference. Just wish I could see it.

Congrats to those who are doing well! And know, that even if others aren't noticing or commenting, YOU know you feel and look better. That is what counts!! As for me, I am not being serious about this most days.

Next week I plan to incorporate some intermittent fasting. At the least I am going to wait until noon-ish to have my first meal of the day. And at the most I want to try the 5:2 program where you eat normally (I'll do LC and will use moderation versus gorging) 5 days a week and do a semi fast of about 500 calories on 2 days. I will avoid alcohol except for the one evening I am going out to dinner.

I decided on the intermittent fasting because I refuse to give up going out and indulging a couple of times a week. I am trying to figure out how I can honor the "social party animal" part of my personality, yet still get healthier for the LONG TERM! We'll see..

Kath~ You've done a marvelous job so far. We are our own worst critics and can never see changes in ourselves physically. I find that many people don't comment because of simply just being unsure and do not want to offend in any way. Hang in there and KEEP GOING! 75lbs is ALOT to be proud of!!!

Thanks for the support!!

Diana, I can relate to your friend and how she equates her weight to being safe. I was abused as achild too and my weight has always protected me from being hurt again. That has been one of the main factors that throws me off from continuing to lose and get healthier; that fear. As much as I "know" it is not really true; the weight protects me only in the sense that I am not out in the world really living, only working or at home. And as much as I would like friends and family to notice, I don't want them to either because I don't like the attention directed at me. It is a catch-22.

I am proud of myself to some degree as long as I don't focus on how heavy I still am and how difficult it will be to accomplish losing a lot more. For now, I am proud and encouraged that I'm 75lbs down.

Kathy

Kath- yes, I agree with you... and I was with my BFF today.... and she said that people are starting to notice her weight loss... and she just has to step back - take a breath - but I think that she will be able to handle losing weight now.... she just has to take it one day at a time...

I am also like that... I may lose a good amount of weight and then I would eat things that I should not eat... and I really do not know why I just think it is mind game.... just like Laura when she said that she could not see all the weight she has lost, but other people could.... sometimes we still see ourselves as heavy....

but I am committed to dropping all this weight and get healthy... but I know that along the way I will get off track... but then will get back on... and Kath you should be very proud of yourself..... a loss of 75 pounds is great...

am going to work out really hard this coming month..... have been a tad up and down the past few days..... ate some things I should not of eaten
am dog/sitting until tomorrow.... I am there in the evenings and then back home for a few hours for my own fur-child.... and so have ate some easy carbs... some bad carbs put today eating good so far... and will pick up a salad for my dinner...... I am 276.5 today.... but was 273.1 on Monday... that is what happens when I eat bad/easy carbs....

so just have to get back on track again..... and think about my goal for the coming month... want to drop 12 pounds next month... and that is very doable for me IF I stay away from those bad/easy carbs......

I'm here! Just not a whole lot to say... been flip-flopping between 240-241 for 10 days now...so not all that exciting...

Hang in there, Diana the number will be back to the low soon! I committed to some form of exercise every day for the month of Nov. I hope I can do it!!! I figured jumping in with both feet was the best way to get me to "just do it"..

I'm here... my mom always told me that if I can't say anything "good", not to say anything at all.. I have nothing "good" to say.. I am already in vacation mindset and I am not leaving until 8 days from now!

I am also in a *planning* mode.. I am planning to start the 5:2 Fast Diet when I return from my trip. I'm spending a lot of time reading and planning. Story of my life. It feels right, this time..And, the cycling makes sense.. as does the whole intermittent calorie restriction concept.

Pawleys - I sure do understand about the easy carbs. They are everywhere, aren't they? Petsitting is fun though! Who can think about food when you're with a loveable furbaby?

Danielle, you are doing great! Our bodies rebel sometimes!

I hope everyone else is doing and feeling good.

Planning for vacation can wreak havoc on the the best laid plans. I really feel for ya, girl.
5:2 sounds like a good plan, best of luck with it! I miss JUDDD so much. I wish I could eat what I want and be able to lose...
My body is trying to decide whether it's ok to let me have the losses or not I believe I was set at around 240 for many years and that's why this is happening now.. Powering thru, nothing can stop me from achieving my goals!

Hi, I am here too. I am looking forward to the next month too. Hopefully I'll be able to exercise again. It keeps me focused. Today for some reason every meal was a struggle not to cheat. I get like this like once a month. For some crazy reason I want to reward myself with a treat. I must fight it. Now tomorrow I'll be back to normal.

The 5:2 might work better for you Judy. Good plan.

Diana and Danielle. We must keep going! We can do it!

Judy, where are you going on vacation?

I'm ending the month on a good note. I rode my exercise bike for 30 minutes yesterday, it's the first time in a long time I've gone over 20 minutes. Yesterday was a stressful day at work and it actually ocurred to me to exercise to help relieve that stress; it helped me sleep really well last night and not wake up thinking about work.

I baked cookies yesterday for my clients and didnt eat any even though I was really tempted. It's the first time since May that I've made something I can't eat.

And this morning I saw the 330s (339.8); that made me smile. I also think this is the first October ever that I haven't eaten halloween candy.

Kathy
